Quiz: Name a Single Country With a Postive Real Interest Rate?

  1. The Answer is None.

    There is not a single country in the world with a positive real interest rate.

    That's just goes to show that there not a single central banker in the world that gives a shit about inflation. That means right now they are perfectly comfortable letting inflation get out of control, as if it isn't already.
  2. And... don't we wish we knew the REAL reason why.... ??

    The OP obviously didn't do any research, there's quite a few out there.
  6. Come on guys, why let the facts get in the way of a good headline.

    The OP has a point.

  8. Isn't Japan still deflationary -- or at the minimum, holding flat.

    That means their 1/2 point target rate is > inflation.
  9. Your answer is for the question; name a single country doesn't lie about its numbers come out.
